Emergency Medicine Management of Opioid Use Disorder

Building Your System for Today & Tomorrow (92450)

Session originally hosted June 2022

Despite its high morbidity and mortality, opioid use disorder (OUD) is inadequately treated with evidence-based medicine. Medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) programs must be established in emergency departments (ED) for the maximum number of patients to be provided this highly effective therapy. However, due to long standing stigma associated with OUD, developing treatment programs can be a challenge without buy-in from every level of the hospital.

In this training, we will focus on patient-centered strategies to incorporate MOUD into your ED. Tips and tricks will be shared by clinical experts that have developed programs in their hospitals, throughout Michigan and California. By the end of this training, you should be equipped to build a patient-centered, evidence-based treatment program that will become part of your local culture.

At the conclusion of this training, learners should be able to:
✓ Build an emergency department medication for opioid use disorder team
✓ Identify and recommend a clinical champion
✓ Assess and set up a network of community partners
✓ Evaluate and develop partners within the hospital
✓ Design a program that is clinician friendly
